acquisition deals are difficult to wrap up in the country due to china's strict regulatory restrictions. ali? in 2009. >> we'll keep an eye on that. great to see you as always this morning. "american morning" begins right now. casey anthony's fate is now in the hands of the jury. today is day two of deliberations. the prosecution painting a dark picture calling her a pathological liar with everything to gain they say by the death of little caylee. new accusations of sexual against dominique strauss-kahn and now the former imf chief is filing a counter claim. we're live in paris with the latest on this "american morning."
3:01 am
good morning, everybody. welcome to "american morning." it is tuesday, july 5th. after the fireworks, everyone's getting up to get back to a shortened week. kiran is off. >> congress is in session. jury deliberations resume this morning in the casey anthony murder trial. the jury failed to reach a verdict after nearly six hours of deliberations yesterday. but first, prosecutors delivered the final blow during closing arguments calling casey a, quote, pathological liar and questioning who had the most to gain by caylee anthony's death. david mattingly joins us live from orlando. david? >> reporter: good morning, the prosecution had the last word yesterday before the case went to the jury and they made it count. >> anthony said he would trade places with his daughter in a second. >> your honor -- >> just minutes before this sad and tragic case was put in the hands of the jury, it looked like casey anthony had heard
3:02 am
enough. the prosecution painted her as a party girl whose child got in the way and had to go. not as the defense claims a loving mother whose little girl accidentally drowned in the family pool. >> no conceivable reason why anybody would put duct tape on the face of a dead child. i said it before. people don't make accidents look like murder. that's absurd. >> reporter: in closing arguments, prosecutors used their strongest language yet, calling anthony a pathological liar and playing this recorded phone conversation when casey effortlessly lies to a friend about a nanny kidnapping caylee. >> they said that the person that you dropped caylee with doesn't even exist. >> because, oh look, they can't find her in the florida database. she is not just not from florida. if they would actually listen to anything that i would have said
3:03 am
to them they would have had their leads, they maybe could have tracked her down. they haven't listened to a [ bleep ] thing i have said. >> reporter: the final blow, leaving the jury with these suspicious images, casey anthony living it up in the spotlight of a hot body contest and brandishing a new tattoo declaring the beautiful life, all in the weeks after her daughter caylee had disappeared. >> whose life was better? that's the only question you need to answer in considering why caylee marie anthony was left on the side of the road dead. >> reporter: that was probably just one of many questions the jury now has, and we're looking at them coming back and getting back to work today in a little
3:04 am
over two hours. >> give us a sense of they got the case yesterday. they spent some time deliberating and they're coming back today. how much time have they already deliberated for? >> reporter: they got in a half day yesterday. they're looking at a full day today. the judge making sure they'll have breaks for lunch. they come in at 8:30 and break before dinner. very civilized hours for this jury but everyone watching them, wanting to know when they might be able to make a decision. >> all right. we'll keep an eye on that with you, david. thanks very much. david mattingly in orlando. obviously, the whole country and some around the world watching this case. >> we don't know much about the jurors and starting to scrutinize where they work. their backgrounds and likely to influence what's happening behind the scenes that we can't see in the jury room. fascinating stuff. a high-ranking drug lord taken down. officials call it a triumph for the mexican government.
3:05 am
police arrested jesus agulair saturday. officials say he's the founder of a criminal organization. he's suspected in the murder of i.c.e. agent sabato in february, shot to death traveling in an armored van to mexico city. he is also investigated for the deaths of dozens of migrants. an update on a story broke here yesterday morning. at least one american is dead and as many as eight people are missing after a tourist boat capsized. between 43 and 44 people were on board the boat when it ran into bad weather sunday. it capsized and sank. the u.s. coast guard joined the mexican navy in the search effort. after a deaddy day in syria, government tanks are reportedly lining up on the outskirts of the city. in reports, three people were
3:06 am
killed, more than two activists rounded up in predawn raids and told up to 1,000 young syrians taken up positions around the eastern syrian city hoping to protect citizens who live there. days after a new york court released him, former chief dominique strauss-kahn faces more accusations and possibly charges this time in france. >> right. jim bittermann is live in paris. jim, what's the latest as it looks like the case here against him is not as solid as it once was, now you have the allegations resurfacing in france. >> reporter: well, they're allegations only. in fact, no charges laid. what's happened as a lawyer for tristane benon, a writer here, says she will file a complaint with the prosecutor's office in paris later on today. that complaint will be taken under advisement from the prosecution and decide whether or not there's enough evidence to proceed with formal charges. he will have to decide attempted rape because if it's sexual
3:07 am
aggression, sexual assault, the fact is beyond the statute of limitations. attempted rape is within the statute of limitations. this relates to ans dent eight years ago back in 2003, and miss benonsays back then she was a young writer, interviewer and interviewed strauss-kahn and he attacked her in a near empty apartment. she managed to struggle free. the details are very difficult this far on for either her lawyer or the prosecutor to provide evidence for and i think one of the things we have seen already is that the lawyers have now filed a counter suit against her for defamation because they feel that she can't prove what she is saying took place. >> jim, what does this mean for strauss-kahn and the political reputation inside that country? because it looked like it was in tatters a few weeks ago and then those talking about, well, if the charges were dropped in this
3:08 am
country -- >> could he run for president again? >> could he have a renaissance? what does this mean for that? >> reporter: further proof that politics a week is like an eternity. fact is things have changed here a lot. he, a lot of people in the socialist side, his party, saying that he should come back and try to run but the general population doesn't feel that way if you believe the opinion polls. one came out this morning saying 54% of the french would not like to see him run for president. so, he still hads kind of a reputation problem and unclear how the socialists handle this. they're supposed to have a primary soon and depends on how strauss-kahn does on the charges in new york and what happens with this case here but it's not inconceivable that he could still become presidential candidate. but like i say, opinion polls are not in his favor. >> jim bittermann, thanks very much. >> the woman replacing dominique strauss-kahn is beginning the first day today. the former french finance

3:34 am
deal. the general doubts it. the vice president has said that he has full power the negotiate and he can sign any document but the president is out of the country, he's sick, incapacitated so why can't you just do a deal with the vice president? >> translator: our brother the vice president is wise. and all respect him. but in truth, he does not act with full authority as president of the republic of yemen. >> reporter: both sides claim war can be avoided and appeared deadlocked all because the president refuses to budge. well, there's a huge amount at stake here, not just a civil war, not just fighting breaking out in the capital but where we are in the south of the country right now we're less than an hour's drive from a province that al qaeda in the arabian peninsula have control of, control and influence in the south here. so while you have the

evidence this morning that a sedin tear lifestyle can shorten your life. women who sit for long periods of time are a lot more likely to develop deadly blood clots in the lungs. 17,000 women over 18 years, those who spent 41 hours or more a week sitting when they weren't at work were twice as likely to develop a potentially life threatening pulmonary embolism. 41 hours of sitting not at work. >> not doing anything, you should be able to sit. i'm wondering whether it's same for men. >> just a study of women. there you go. a new study of canada finds kids from low-income homes more likely to walk or ride bikes to school and helping them maintain a healthier weight but once rids reach the age of 10 more likely to take the bus or rides to school and concludes most children are not meeting physical activity guide lines. >> bottom line, move, america.

3:45 am
and 90% and 80% of the pay and more, or others losing their jobs, home foreclosures, one has to be very sensitive to that. >> reporter: president obama is already on the record saying work it out. and he did it with a little tone in his voice. >> for an industry that's making $9 billion a year in revenue, they can figure out how to divide it up in a sensible way. and be true to their fans who are the ones who obviously allow for all the money that they're making so my expectation and hope is that they'll resolve it without me intervening because it turns out i have a lot of other stuff to do. >> reporter: owners say the economic model changed an enthere's a need to retruck which you are but with the average career span of a player of six years, players are reluctant. fans we talked to tend to side with the players and say get a deal done already. >> it's a business and they can come to a win-win situation. i don't think it has to be a
3:46 am
win-lose. i really don't. >> i think both sides should just end it and get back to what they do. >> reporter: as for the product on the field -- >> i think absolutely the product will suffer if, in fact, training camps are delayed in a very significant fashion and certainly one of the biggest concerns are injuries. >> reporter: if a deal isn't reached soon training camps, preseason games and the regular season would be in jeopardy and stadiums like this goes empty meaning less revenue and something nobody wants to see happen. joe johns, cnn, maryland. all right. 46 minutes after the hour. coming up, an actress with a perfect manicure inspires a business. we'll tell you who's dubbed the god mother of vietnamese hair salons. a sea gull takes off with a camera. wait until you hear how the guy got the camera back. is all we humans get. we spend them on treadmills. we spend them in traffic.

3:52 am
the time became a mentor to lee and 19 other women with poor english skills but wanted to work. one thing caught their eye. >> one day, we look at the nail. we said, the nails look so beautiful. >> they loved my fingernails. i thought, i'm going to bring the manicurist. she came up once a week and gave them a lesson. they would practice on each other, on me. >> reporter: an idea was hatched. hedren convinced a beauty school to train them for free. they were licensed and started to doing business. they opened salons building an american dream one coat at a time. >> when other vietnamese would enter the country, they learned about this manicuring business and it's become huge. >> reporter: today, 40% of manicurists in the u.s. are vietnamese americans, in california it's 80%. tam win runs a college to
3:53 am
vietnamese students. >> we contribute to tippi hedren and called the god mother of the industry. everything she did in 1975 created and paved the path for what i do now. >> reporter: he's following in the footsteps of his parents who fled vietnam in 1975. three years later, they opened a salon and launched beauty schools. his parent's inspiration? high school friend twan le. the manicurists with a helping hand if a hollywood star. >> she gave us love, courage. she show us the future. she make us feel like we can make it. >> reporter: cnn, los angeles. >> what an awesome and unexpected piece. >> yeah. >> really interesting. how ice this for a bird's eye view? >> love this. >> hey! hey!
3:54 am
>> wow. that's a sea gull with the filmmaker's camera in cannes, france. he said he had to climb up a castle wall to get it back. if you have ever seen a sea gull in action, they pick up just about anything. >> how big was the camera? >> i saw a saw gull on the statue of liberty ferry pull an entire hot dog and bun out of the woman's hand and fly away with it. >> great. this is a great piece of video. >> i love it. there you go. one era of space travel is about to end and one to begin. the race to commercialized space is on. entrepreneurs scrambling to make space travel an option for the general public. pardon me. >> in the next hour, it's going to lead to the question of the day this morning. should the federal government get out of the business of space
3:55 am
exploration? here's a response w. the federal government at the helm space exploration is not for profit. i like that. knowledge should be the motive in space, not profit. >> kyle says, no, we have made great research and discovers with it. we need to stay in space exploration. >> robert says i think the u.s. government should get out of the business of space travel as soon as the other governments around the world do. and they're not. >> scaled back in proportion with the deficit and debt problems and some people say space exploration is one of the thing that is sort of keeps america exceptional. in fairness, we should say, the government's not getting out of the business but the business of shuttling people do and from orbit and the international space station. that's the part that's commercialized. in theory, nasa is doing more stuff. >> we'll see what that is. want to hear your thoughts. just ahead, verdict watch. the jury reconvenes in the casey
3:56 am
anthony murder trial. her life on the line. we'll ask the experts where jurors may not see eye to eye. u. i do believe it's part of a locust. make sure your alignments good. your brakes are good. you've got all sorts different things that you check off. your fluid levels. pretty much everything you could need. it gets done. it gets done quickly. and it gets done correctly. the works fuel saver package, just $29.95 or less after rebate. only at your ford dealer. you're a doctor. you're a car doctor. maybe a car doctor.

i'm christine romans.
3:59 am
the jury will now decide casey anthony's fate. deliberations resume today. the prosecution painting a grim picture calling casey pathological liar with everything to gain they say by the death of little caylee on this "american morning." welcome to "american morning." tuesday, july 5th. >> let's start today with the big story. jury deliberations resuming this morning in the casey anthony murder trial. jurors failed to reach a verdict after nearly six hours of deliberations yesterday. the prosecutors delivered the final blow in closing arguments calling her a pathological liar and questioning who had the most to gain by caylee's death. david mattingly joining us with more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. when the jury gets back to work today, they have a lot to look at. we went through 33 days of testimony in this trial but the prosecution yesterday tried to make it very simple for them
4:00 am
with a very clear message. >> mr. anthony said he would trade places with his daughter in a second. >> reporter: just minutes before the sad and tragic case was put in the hands of the jury, it looked like casey anthony had heard enough. the prosecution painted her as a party girl whose child got in the way and had to go. not as the defense claims a loving mother whose little girl accidentally drowned in the family pool. >> there's just no conceivable reason why anybody would put duct tape on the face of a dead child. i said it before. people don't -- people don't make accidents look like murder. that's absurd. >> reporter: in closing arguments, prosecutors used their strongest language yet calling anthony a pathological liar and playing this recorded phone conversation where casey effortlessly lies to a friend about a nanny kidnapping caylee
4:01 am
they said that the person that you dropped caylee with doesn't even exist. >> because, oh look, they can't find her in the florida database. she is not just from florida. if they would actually listen to anything that i would have said to them they would have had their leads, they maybe could have tracked her down. they haven't listened to a [ bleep ] thing that i have said. >> reporter: the final blow, leaving the jury with these suspicious images, casey anthony living it up in the spotlight of a hot body contest and brandishing a new tattoo declaring the beautiful life. all in the weeks after her daughter caylee had disappeared. >> whose life was better? that's the only question you need to answer in considering why caylee marie anthony was
4:02 am
left on the side of the road dead. >> reporter: and while the jury considers that question, the stakes couldn't be higher. remember, if they find her guilty of capital murder, she will face the death penalty. christine? >> all right. david mattingly in orlando, thank you. let's continue the discussion with sunny hostin. she's been following the case all along with us. >> we're also joined by criminal defense attorney paul callan. sunny, let's start with you. how did you feel yesterday in the prosecution's sort of driving the nail in here that this woman's a liar, she had motive and comes down to one question -- whose life was better? >> sthey did a terrific job. they have to bring it home, they have to come big. i will say this. the motive issue has always been a problem for this prosecution because the defense has shown that everyone says that casey
4:03 am
anthony had an amazing relationship with her daughter, that there's no sign of child abuse and typically women that kill their children, they have a history after abusing their children are a history of mental illness. i think they did a decent job of driving home motive. i don't know that it took them over the hump and also, of course, motive is not an element of the crime and didn't have to prove it legally but i think the jury is wondering, why would she did this? why would a mother kill such a beautiful child? >> paul, perhaps those questions will be unanswered. is that enough to convict? >> well, it is enough to convict combining wit the physical and scientific evidence. you know, i think when i look at this case and talk to people about this case, everybody says we think she's guilty because what mother allows her child to disappear and what mother acts this way when the child disappears? totally inappropriate behavior. the prosecutor then puts on the
4:04 am
board the decomposition smell in her car, human body was this that car. but the big thing to me is that duct tape found on the remains. if that duct tape was put on that child, that was an intentional murder. >> right. >> we also have these bizarre lies. we have a swimming pool story that's put up by defense attorneys, not an ounce of evidence offered in support. and you know, just to show you in terms of the lies in this case, when i was prepping for this appearance yesterday, i went back to look at baez's entry into the case when he had the first press conference. do you know what he said at that press conference in he said, you know, my client is innocent. she knows her baby is alive. she's given me leads. i'm going to search in three states for where the baby is. she was lying to her own defense attorney when she hired him to defend her in a murder case. >> the baby drowned? >> right. she knew that at the time? please. i think all of that is put together for the jury and
4:05 am
ultimately i think they'll come to a conclusion she probably is guilty. >> probably is guilty, though. is that enough for a prosecutor? i don't think it's enough. i mean, you have to prove it beyond a reasonable doubt and i agree with you, paul. i think everyone thinks something happened here but i'm not sure anyone knows what happened here. >> i think, sunny, where you are going to see the compromise here, you are absolutely right. in a murder case, jurors take the responsibility very seriously to evaluate the evidence. >> in a capital murder case. >> yes. and they look for the truth to be drawn from the evidence and if there's a compromise here, she is found guilty but of a slightly lesser account, maybe instead of first-degree murder, second-degree murder. i can't see the jury letting her walk. >> will we ever -- with the lies, are we ever going to know what happened to that baby? >> i've been questioning myself about it. i'm following the case from the very beginning. i think the truth is somewhere in the middle. the defense is saying it's an accidental drowning. i don't think that makes sense. as you mentioned, paul, there's
4:06 am
no evidence to support that. the defense is saying she rendered the daughter unconscious with chloroform. i think the truth is probably in the middle and lies with casey anthony and such a prolific liar. will we ever know what really happened? i don't know. >> the complicating factor is everybody around her has a different story. >> yeah. >> and i think that's got to be hard for a your to comprehend. maybe i don't believe her. do i believe her mother? do i believe her father? do i believe her brother? >> can you imagine, they're in the jury room debating this -- >> scratching your head. >> the death of this poor little baby and back to the chloroform and the duct tape thing. >> may be arguing over that a lot. i have a feeling. >> putting her to sleep with the chloroform, why do you need the duct tape? maybe she wanted to go to the party and putting the kid to sleep. where does the duct tape come from? you just put -- it was a brutal murder intentionally, put the duct tape on. they're arguing about this. will we know?
4:07 am
i don't know if we will. >> yeah. the whole thing with the guy moving the body, the duct tape from. was it really on the mouth or some place else? >> reasonable doubt lives here. >> you're right. if you're a prosecutor sitting here and you have been sitting here saying they have certainly introduced enough reasonable doubt into this. >> they have. i mean, it does live there. >> just by confusion. >> just by confusion. sort the defense trick. throw the spaghetti on the wall. figure out what sticks. >> we'll continue to talk to you about this. sunny hostin and paul callan. all right. a new sexual assault complaint being filed today against former head dominique strauss-kahn. a french journalist claims that strauss-kahn tried to rape her eight years ago at the time her mother advised her not to file a complaint fearing it would hurt her young career. the attorneys say she is making

4:09 am
in a bigger fight, a bigger fight between democrats and republicans. something that they have raised proforma for years without addressing the bigger problem of the united states spending more than it brings in. >> dangerous fight. it's apples and shampoo. >> you are right. >> only thing in common is buying them at a grocery store. >> very good. governor of montana wants answers calling for more to be done in the oil cleanup. exxonmobil reports at least 200 workers are on site. nearly 42,000 gallons of oil leaked into the water. they were able to stop the leak. a fireworks barge on fire in the charles river in boston. it was part of the city's fourth of july fireworks show last night. the boston fire department was able to put out the flames about an hour ago. no word yet on how it started or if anyone was hurt. and 20,000 calories in 10 minutes. joey chestnut scarfing down -- watch this. >> don't watch this.

>> scarfed down 62 hot dogs for the fifth consecutive nathan's famous eating contest. >> looks like he's going to be sick! >> good chance of that. it was not a personal best for joey chestnut but did win nine more dogs than the next closest guy. >> there was a little controversy. kobiyashi, you might remember him, he staged his own renegade hot dog eating contest in manhattan yesterday. he ate 69 dogs and buns. that would have been a world record but he's in some sort of contract dispute with -- >> not part of the nathan's thing. >> he's staging his own because he decided not to be a part of it. >> it's like a record or not? all very complicated. >> only a record on coney island. >> always seem smaller. >> i know. you know, little people with big appetites. >> there you go. three days and counting to the final mission of the space shuttle program. up next, life after the shuttle and the race also to

come friday morning, we'll be witnessing the end of a rae in space travel. >> the crew on this mission, small crew, they're being called the final four. the astronauts arriving yesterday at the kennedy space center in florida in those test jets. >> that's right where we find john zarrella this morning. a new chapter is about to begin, isn't it? >> reporter: yeah. that's right, christine and ali. we are at the forefront of a radical change. and it's certainly not without its risk, but in the future, nasa's going to go back to what they do best which is exploration and saying to commercial companies, low earth orbit is yours.
4:15 am
elan musk runs space x. richard bran ston with virgin galactic. they're trying to make space travel as routine as boarding an airplane. >> people used to say it's impossible to build a spaceship and your own spaceship company and take people into space. that's the challenge i love to prove them wrong. >> i want to see a future exploring the stars, going to other planets, doing the great things we read about in science fiction and in the movies. >> reporter: there are several companies, some big, some small, who see as nasa moves on to distant planets that weightless region just above the atmosphere. just out of reach right now becoming quite possibly a good investment. >> nasa still in there with a heavy lift rocket.
4:16 am
but we've also got this hopefully flowering of private space flight and that's gong to get us in orbit. >> reporter: space x and virgin galactic on the verge of not just opening but stepping through that door to the future. we want to make space accessible to everyone. i mean, that's a revolutionary change and incredibly exciting and brings the possibility of space travel to all americans which is fantastic. >> reporter: next year, musk hopes to begin carrying cargo to the international space station, eventually astronauts. a commercial company replacing the space shuttle. >> confirmed. docking is complete. >> we believe firmly we can send astronauts to the space station within three years of receiving ana is a contract to do so. >> reporter: but unless it's safe, nasa's administrator says no u.s. astronaut will be on board. >> i cannot allow them to put us
4:17 am
in jeopardy by not focusing on crew safety and the like. that's my job. >> reporter: the stakes are high. there is no turning back. >> please welcome the future of space travel. >> reporter: with the shuttle retired and astronauts left to riding russian spaceships, nasa is counting on commercial companies to get it right, make it work. and the more who make it work, the more affordable it will become. >> that's the end of a particular era. and it's up to individuals like myself if you're in a position to be able to, you know, achieve wonderful things to not waste that position. >> down and locked. >> liftoff. >> reporter: a little later today nasa's going to hold a briefing and update everyone on the status of the shuttle launch, the weather for friday morning at 11:26 a.m.
4:18 am
and at 1:00 this afternoon, the countdown clock picks up for the countdown starting for the final launch in the history of the space shuttle program. >> i'll be down with you, john, on friday morning. >> reporter: yeah. >> good time. tell me this. the question of the day has to do with whether the government should remain in the business of space exploration. in truth, when you ask nasa, they tell you they're keen to stay in the business and getting out of the business of shuttling people and cargo to the international space center. >> right. >> reporter: right. yeah, no question. and nasa's saying, look, what we're going to do is take the money using on shuttle and we're diverting it to building a heavy lift rocket, already building a multi-purpose space capsule. their plan now it looks like to go to an asteroid in 2025. manned mission. and then eventually human mission to mars after that.
4:19 am
the question, of course, the big question is, is there enough national resolve in this country to say, nasa, here's the money. go do that. that's the question. and that's still will be, you know, some time down the road before we have answers to that. >> got it. good context for the question. thank you, john. we'll see you through the course of the week and see you on friday. stay with cnn for live coverage this friday, july 8th, 11:26 a.m. as -- >> the space shuttle "atlantis" takes off for the final time on the final mission ever. >> and that brings us to the question of the day. should the federal government get out of the business of space exploration. send us an e-mail, tweet or tell us on facebook and read your thoughts throughout the morning.

it's that time of year. no, not blts or -- >> it's blt season apparently. >> football fans start to talk about training camp and still no deal between the nfl owners and players. >> that could change this week. the league and the locked out players set to talk face to face today in new york. fans are beginning to worry that the game on the field will suffer if they don't figure something out this week. here's joe johns. >> reporter: we're nearly four months into the nfl lockout and still no deal in place as owners and players argue over how to split up over $9 billion in
4:28 am
annual revenue. >> greed. >> ridiculous. >> pathetic. >> reporter: to say fans are getting testy would be putting it mildly. james brown, a nationally known nfl sportscaster offers his take. >> i would like to think that prudent heads will prevail in coming up with something that effectively is a win-win situation and doesn't alienate your fan base. look at folks dealing with day-to-day issues, being cut back to 90% and 80% of the work week and 90% and 80% of the pay and more or others losing their jobs. home foreclosures. one has to be very sensitive to that. >> reporter: president obama is already on the record saying work it out. and he did wit a little tone in his voice. >> for an industry that's making $9 billion a year in revenue, they can figure out how to divide it up in a sensible way. and be true to their fans who are the ones who obviously allow for all the money that they're
4:29 am
making. so my expectation and hope is that they'll resolve it without me intervening because it turns out i've got a lot of other stuff to do. >> reporter: owners say the economic model has changed and that there's a need to retruck which you are but with the average career span of a player at about six years players are reluctant. fans we talked to tend to side with the players but they also say get a deal done already. >> it's a business and they can come to a win-win situation. i don't think it has to be a win-lose. i don't think. >> i think both sides should just end it and get back to what they do. >> reporter: as for the product on the field -- >> i think absolutely the product will suffer if, in fact, training camps are delayed in a very significant fashion and certainly one of the biggest concerns are injuries. >> reporter: if a deal isn't reached soon, training camps, preseason games and the regular season would be in jeopardy and stadiums like this one would go empty meaning less revenue which is something nobody wants to see happen. joe johns, cnn, landover,
4:30 am
maryland. top stories now. u.s. forest service bus with nine firefighters crashed last night in palm dale, california. this is new video to cnn. cnn affiliate ktla reports that the nine firefighters sustained injuries. three of them trapped in the vehicle. medical evacuation helicopters were called to the scene occurring just outside the angeles national forest. the cause is not known. jury deliberations set to resume this morning in the casey anthony murder trial. jurors failing to reach a verdict after nearly six hours yesterday but first the prosecution had the last words calling casey a quote pathological liar and asking whose life was better without caylee. even though the case against dominique strauss-kahn may be collapsing here in the united states he faces trouble back in native france. the lawyer for tristane benonplans to file a lawsuit today claiming strauss-kahn
4:31 am
tried to rape her in 2003. strauss-kahn filed his own complaint accusing her of false declaratio declarations. >> a new poll conducted online by harris interactive for a french newspaper finds that the french public is split 49% to 45% on whether they want the former french presidential contender to return to politics. elaine, welcome back to the program. so these newest revelations, although kind of old and heard from this young reporter a few weeks ago and her allegations and the allegations of her mother but if there are charges actually filed, what does that mean for dominique strauss-kahn? >> well, it complicates his political future because even if her lawyer cannot convince a prosecutor to go forward with this case, it changes the atmosphere and certainly
4:32 am
distracts from the socialist party platform of trying to beatnik las sarkozy next year. sort of like the french version of anthony weiner. do you want the french political landscape dominated by dominique strauss-kahn's sexual proliveties and possible criminal acts. >> that's why it seems change members of his own party calling for him to be included in the race. it's not possible, despite what -- the outcome of the united states, it's not possible that the conversation about dom niece strauss-kahn and proliveties won't dominate. why would socialists in france still want him to be central to the argument? is there no one close to him in perms of personality or graf it is an or intellect? >> you see, i have to disagree with what you're saying. yes, there have been the odd
4:33 am
socialist supporter of dominique strauss-kahn who said he's innocent, a martyr, comes back a hero and why shouldn't he run for president? but what's happened in the last 24, 48 hours is cooler heads within the socialist party have prevailed and they're saying this man needs to rest. we need a period of reflection. you already have two very good candidates for the socialist party nomination. martin oblei with a stronger base than strauss-kahn and seen as a leftist with caviar tastes and you have the former head of the socialist party with a strong base in the countryside. >> you know, it's interesting, elaine. it all comes after last week, the prosecution's case taken a big hit here in the united states and that is what really just really hit his reputation. how is that playing now and i
4:34 am
guess if you have the charges from the young journalist continuing forward, i mean, is it just fantasy think this guy has a political future? >> this is an extraordinarily important moment in france's political culture. i have been saying for weeks that this is france's anita hill moment, the moment where the sexual morays in the united states changed when anita hill charged justice thomas with sexual harassment and you're starting to see that in france. women are starting to complain about sexual harassment. there was a conference i went to in south of paris over the weekend with women feminist groups who are making rape one of their main issues in the coming year. women are just saying, look, we don't like the nasty remarks of men in the workplace so it's a moment to be watched and the pandora's box is open and not going to close. >> that's interesting.
4:35 am
anita hill moment for france. interesting comparison. thank you. nice to see you. her book is how the french play the game of life and the look at how the french view things differently about the quest, the chase, more so than the act or the conquest. it's in everything, politics and art, in life. of course, this case. it's a beast all of its own and interesting. coming up next, the skills of the famous royal air force pilot. this is prince william duke of cambridge with the first ever water cham ler in a chopper. this was deliberate much to the delight of anxious crowds in canada. what can we expect when william and catherine head to l.a. next? 35 minutes after the hour. maybe, it's something you haven't seen yet. the 2nd generation of intel core processors. this is visibly smart.

check it out. comes in for us. >> joining us live from toronto on the royal couple on this public tour is carolyn harris and i keep saying that, you know, the water landing there is so dramatic and the duke spoke french in quebec and then not just all about kate's hair -- >> little bit about him. >> how are they coming off to the canadian public? >> i think they're making a very good impression. hundreds of thousands of canadians attended the canada day celebrations on parliament hill and prince william delivered a speech in english and french and then when he traveled on to quebec city, he was speaking french there. and they've really been making a good impression and attracting very positive feedback. >> a lot different, really, than when his parents went to canada. it was much more stiff, right? and you never really would have expected them to hug after a
4:41 am
boat race. you know? i mean, it is a very different kind of relaxed, younger version of the monarchy, isn't it? >> yes. charles and diana certainly didn't do any dragon boating coming in 1983. and certainly, the duke and duchess of cambridge are putting together a very he laxed vibe in terms of how they relate to each other. whereas when charles and diana visited in 1983, to a certain extent, she upstaged him and there was so much interest in her fashion choices. and her conversations with ordinary canadians that his speeches when he was accepting honorary degrees and opening the university games was overshadowed and with william and kate, his speeches and kate's interactions with ordinary canadians receiving a lot of positive attention. >> let's talk about the negative attention. it happens every time there's a discussion of royals and protesters, some people at some of the stops that felt that they
4:42 am
don't think that the royalty has any particular place in canada. tell us a bit about that movement. is that a big deal? >> well, canada's never had referendums regarding the abolition of the constitutional monarchy the way, for instance, australia has. canada's viewed as a friendly place for a royal visit and probably one of the reasons it was chosen as william and kate's first overseas tour. nevertheless, there's a degree -- there's a political component to what opposition there is to canada's relationship with the constitutional monarchy and this tends to exist the most in quebec where certain french-canadians, commentators, the end to view the briltish monarchy as symbolic of the british conquest of canada and responses to william and kate's visit to canada tended to be more complicated in quebec than the other stops along the tour.
4:43 am
>> there's royal history and anne of green gables, for example. >> yes. >> that was insiders say that the trip to prince edward island suggested by kate, a big fan of the book and the series anne of green gables s. that true? >> well, the british press reported a source close to the palace said she enjoyed it as a child and was really interested in seeing the sights associated with the novels, so they visited by the sea, the setting for the white sands hotel in the films and the road to avalon tv series and traveled on by helicopter to summerside taking them over many of the sights from the novel, so it shows that kate's had influence over how this tour has been put together so there's sites of personal interest to her as well as william. >> somebody asked her a question and trying to see where it was. somebody in a crowd wished her well in the efforts to start a family. she responded, yes, i hope so.
4:44 am
sounds like a nice response but that's got some royal watchers wondering what that was about. >> yes. there's a lot of interest in william and kate starting a family. william was born 11 months after charles and diana's marriage and speculation that this could happen within the year. but certainly, as royal history, you know, demonstrates, you know, things don't always go according to plan. and it could, of course, be longer until they start a family. >> they've been together for eight years and learned each other. they know they're good friends. they have had a long relationship so maybe family is the next step. >> carolyn, thank you for joining us with insight into this. >> thank you. >> carolyn harris, a royal historian. >> a red hat of kate, thumb's up for. >> they look like they're having a nice time. >> she's speaking through --
4:45 am
>> a good point you make. until now, it's not much about him. >> i think he's coming off quite well. >> athletic an flying a helicopter and land it in water. >> all right. stay with cnn all week long and follow the duke and duchess of cambridge through the north american tour of canada and los angeles this weekend. headlines and then presidential hopeful rick sanatorium joining us live on a ten-city tour of iowa fighting for american jobs but what exactly is his plan? also, the most popular anti-smoking drug on the market, it could be dangerous for your heart. elizabeth cohen breaks this down for us in a few minutes. information for smokers, those trying to quit and those who just have. the possibilities are dless.

4:52 am
smoking, is the risk worth it and then you don't take it once you you've stopped smoking? tell us how this is working out. >> each person is different. it really depends. some people take this drug and it helps them quit smoking and they are able to continue taking it. other people take this drug and maybe it helps them quit smoking but maybe it also makes them more likely to have a heart attack, and so you have to talk to your doctor and figure out sort of, you know, help think about which camp you might fall into, how long do you want to take the drug for. there's so many different things in play. ali, i want to tell you about another issue with this drug because it's not just the heart attacks. take a look at this. on the label, it warns that people who take chantix may be likely to have a depressed mood or suicidal actions or hostility or agitation. you ask the question, gee, is it worth it? should you take this? you also have to take that into play that sometimes this drug can make people have these feelings. >> the warning label reflect those things you just talked
4:53 am
about, these other concerns about this drug as well. pfizer makes this drug. what do they say about the heart attack study? >> pfizer saying the folks who did the heart attack study did their math wrong. they say people who take chantix are not likely to have a heart attack, instead 1% likely to have a heart attack. somebody is doing their math differently from somebody else. i do want to say that this is the bottom line. the vast majority of people who take chantix do not have heart attacks, but according to the study, you are more likely to have a heart attack if you're on chantix than if you are not. >> i have spoke to people who have tried everything in the world to quit smoking and chantix worked for them. what advice do you have for people who are trying to quit? >> know the downsides. don't just take chantix without knowing that possibly it might give you some kind of a
4:54 am
cardiovascular or other problem. look at everything you possibly could do to quit smoking and decide which one is going to be the best one for you to try. the way that you do that is you go to cnn.com/empowered -- patient and we have an article there that lays out all of the options for helping you to quit smoking. >> so hard for people to quit. this is more evidence you shouldn't start firp but it's hard to tell people that. >> somehow i knew that is where that conversation was going. >> especially young people. >> between the two of you! don't start smoking and elizabeth is telling me to exercise more and eat vegetables and that kind of stuff. >> ali, i'll interrupt you here. i want to say that smoking is a whole different category. i know i lecture you all the time about exercising and eating better but smoking is a totally different category. just don't do it. >> good advice from both of you, from mom. see you, elizabeth. thank you. final preps. mom! i'll take that as a compliment! >> it is. if you can stop people from

rape. this time in france. i'm christine romans. a log jam for presidential candidates spending the day on the campaign trail in iowa and new hampshire. rick santorum will join us live on this "american morning." good morning! it is tuesday, july 5th. kiran chetry has the day off. >> good morning. as dominique strauss-kahn was beginning his newfound freedom, the former head. international monetary fund is about to be hit with attempted rape eight years ago in france. >> our jim bittermann is live in paris. jim, what is the latest? >> reporter: good morning. we are basically, waiting for the complaint to be filed. the lawyer for someone named
5:01 am
christine beman says he will file that sometime in the prosecutor's office in paris. after that the prosecutor has to take a look at the complaint and see if it is justifiable to bring charges against dominique strauss-kahn here. we are hours away from that. after all, this incident that took place eight years ago is kind of a he said/she said incident as far as we know. we know nothing about any kind of evidence that might still exist eight years on. that could be used against strauss-kahn. >> what about the statute of limitations? >> reporter: on this particular charge, attempted rape, if that is what they go for, in fact, the statute of limitations does not apply because it's ten years of statute limitations that would go until 2013. the prosecutor -- so the fact is
5:02 am
that they have got to really go for attempted rape and that might be a little bit more difficult to prove as well. al. >> jim bittermann in paris, thank you. jury deliberations resume in the casey anthony murder trial. jurors failed to reach a verdict after nearly six hours yesterday. >> let's bring in sunny hostin, a contributor for cnn. we are joined by paul callen, ther who is also following the case. >> i would be shocked a verdict under at least three days in deliberation. have you a trial this long and the world is watching they usually deliberate for a while. >> haven't asked for any read backs or any -- usually you will hear from the jury starting to ask for pieces of testimony be read and the like, right? >> yes, you see that. one of the things that indicates usually is that there are jurors who have divided into camps and
5:03 am
one camp wants this read back to prove their point and so it kind of demonstrates division in the jury a lot of the whtime. it sounds like they are in the very early stages of deliberation and not fighting too much. >> you know why i think this may be different? this is a jury questiosequester 35 days. they have gotten to know each other. typically, when jury aren't sequestered they have to get the time in the room to feel the camps out. they don't have that now because they are friends and living close for a long time. i'm surprised it has taken a long time for them to at least ask for read backs because the evidence is already in -- >> sunny has an interesting point and i think a lot of people would be surprised by this. jurors are not allowed to discuss the case. >> that's right. >> the entire time they are sitting on the case. every day the judge says do not discuss the case amongst each
5:04 am
other. while sequestered they have not discussed until yesterday. >> i have experience in it. you talk about everything else. you talk about your families, the food at the hotel. so -- >> the attorneys. they talk about the attorneys, the judge, the personalities in the courtroom. >> they are friends already. there are bonds that have been made. >> bottom line is -- maybe a good thing and maybe it happens more often than we think. it seems that the defense has done a effective job in entirely muddying the water. maybe it's people who think she is guilty and maybe people have no idea what is going on. >> i think that is right. i think jose baez took a lot of flak when the case first started saying he wasn't experienced enough for a case like this. i think, after seeing the entire presentation, while he may have misstepped by promising so much to the jury in opening statement, he has done a pretty good job with what little he had. let's face it. this is a difficult case to
5:05 am
defend. >> i don't see -- sunny and i have a big disagreement on this. >> you disagree with me on that, paul? >> no. i think that baez is a rookie defense attorney. >> he is a rookie. >> i think he made errors that no experienced defense attorney -- >> that's true. >> the biggest thing, okay? you got a case with a lot of holes in it. you got a lot of reasonable doubt you're putting up on the board. the one thing you don't want to do is promise an alternative theory that you have to prove. he gets up in his opening statement and does something no defense attorney would do saying it's a swimming pool accident and we're going to prove it to you and then he offers no evidence whatsoever on that issue. he loses his credibility completely to the jury. >> it's sort of the pink elephant in the room. you can't unring the bell. perhaps one or two jurors that are thinking, what about the swimming pool? what about the sex abuse? so it's there. >> this is like easter sunday. >> that's right! >> they have put -- yes, he
5:06 am
presented that as the alternative thesis but they colored this with potential responsibility from a father who might have been an abuser, from a brother who might have been an abuser. is that brilliance or is that -- >> it's too soon to tell. i will agree with you, though. i have never seen a defense attorney write that check and there is not the evidence -- i'm surprised about that. >> anybody who tried cases. i've defended and prosecuted murder cases and i'm very careful in my opening statement. when you try these cases, a lot of times you have witness and the witness will come in and give you great testimony. the night before he gets sick or changes his story so you don't want to overpromise to the jury because you never know what is going to happen. here is this guy. swimming accident, sex abuse and all of this stuff he never proves. i think a big mistake. he could have put reasonable doubt on the board without committing to a specific theory. i may be wrong and i think she
5:07 am
is going to be convicted and probably a lesser count so soundy andly have to disagree. >> you think she is getting convicted? >> yes, i think everyone can agree something criminal happened but the question remains what happened. >> will it be capital murder. >> that's right. >> thank you so much. autopsy set today for a woman's body found in an indiana creek. police are trying to determine if it may be missing college student lauren spierer who was last seen leaving a sports bar after a night out with friends in june. dozens of tips but no new leads. eight people missing after a tourist boat capsized off baja peninsula. it ran into bad weather on sunday. cap-sized and quickly sank. the governor of montana is calling for more to be done in the yellowstone river oil cleanup. exxonmobil reports workers are

people are saying a block to the increase to the debt sealing? >> who is blocking what? >> reporter: the republicans are doing that. >> well, no. i think both sides are to blame. the president of the united states is doing anything but leading on this issue. >> that wasn't the question, senator. what would you tell them to do right now? we have to have an i crease in the debt ceiling. would you support it or not? >> well, i would support a responsible increase in the debt ceiling that does something to do something about the basic problem as to why we have a debt ceiling increase which is we are blowing the doors off spending in washington, d.c. and continuing that is not going to be good for the markets, it's not going to be good for the economy. it's good for bottom line. >> were we spending more than we took in in 2003 and in 2004 and 2006? do you recall? >> the answer was we were spending slightly more than we were taking in and we were
5:32 am
having debt ceiling increases that were modest by comparison. >> but you voted for them in all of those four years, correct? >> what we are talking about here, if you go back -- you know, scale matters. scale really does matter. >> all right. >> what you're talking about here is an enormous increase in spending. you're talking about a president who has blown the doors off of washington spending. we are talking about 50% increase above what the normal spending is relative to gdp and there is no end in sight to this and to continue that reckless spending, the huge deficits. talking about a president who almost doubled the amount of national debt in his term of office, vis-a-vis those who came before him. we did it before. it's the same. it's not the same. >> christine here. as a response to a financial crisis, the largest certainly in our memory and since the great depression at the very least -- >> made worse by than president. >> how? >> he didn't double the deficit of his own choice. he didn't walk into office in january of the year that he took
5:33 am
over. >> yes, he did. as a matter of fact he passed a huge stimulus package which now we know the part two quarters has cost american jobs and that's from the report of his own administration, they claimed in december that by the end of last year, that they created 280 million jobs and now saying they created only 240 million jobs. look. you are talking about huge increase in spending. >> senator, i ask you to restate that. i've never heard that in high life. tell me again what you just said. >> if you look at the report that came out on friday, the president's own economic advisers said that the jobs stimulus package actually created fewer jobs over the period of time since the -- since the stimulus package went in place than it did than reported in december. that is 40 million less jobs. >> it's not that. it's a smaller ago grags of jobs. you can't go on a national campaign with this kind of math,
5:34 am
senator. it's incorrect. >> it is not incorrect. >> senator, creating 230 million jobs is not a loss of jobs. it's not a loss of jobs. >> i don't know how you -- one report says we are 280 and now saying only 240. >> you have a lot of interviews to do. you might want to check that math. >> we know jobs creation has been disappointing the past few years but know it's much better now than it was when the president took office. >> that is not true. hold on. the unemployment rate is much higher than it was when he took office. >> we are talking about -- look. we are slicing it two different ways! you're talking about the unemployment rate and you're correct. i'm talking about the number of jobs lost every single month. we are talking about the trajectory and how to turn it around and i want to zero in exactly, very clearly, how you would create jobs because i'll tell you something. when i talk to businessmen and women around the country, i ask
5:35 am
them about healer ahealth care and tax cuts and regulation and they have all different opinions and they just say i just need demand. >> demand is created by making sure people have the resources to create that demand and when government takes more and spends more, people have less. under the obama care, taxes went up. if you look at what we need to do, we need to create a dynamic marketplace and i think what we do so by reducing regulation, like repealing obama care, repealing -- repealing big chunks of dodd/franks. look the epa and fda and llr are doing. this administration has exploded the regulatory process and has encumbered business and its growth. number one. number two, we need to incentive much more -- one area is very important is the area of manufacturing on this jobs tour i'm taking, i'm talking about getting -- creating a zero rate
5:36 am
of taxation and corporations and we need to create good paying jobs and jobs with strong multipler effects for the economy and manufacturing is the key to that. part of what i'm suggesting here -- >> how do you figure that is domestic? we have tried before with different tax breaks and allowi allowing -- big companies have added jobs overseas and haven't been net creators of jobs in the u.s. how do you make sure the jobs happen here and the money just doesn't help fund foreign operations? >> remember, i just said creating a zero rate of taxation for manufacturing jobs created here in the united states. so if you set up a manufacturing facility or expand a manufacturing facility, you're going to have a zero capital gains -- not capital gains. corporate rate or rate -- depending on if you are subchapter s. whatever -- whatever entity you pay taxes through, if you manufacture in the united states you're not going to pay taxes.
5:37 am
what we are going to do is create the multipler effect to make america a place where we make things again. >> would that be better than putting tariffs on chinese goods that some manufacturers say that would allow them to create more jobs here and level the playing field. >> and increase cost of goods for workers many of whom are struggling right now. i don't think we need to make things more expensive here. we need to create incentives in a welcoming and dynamic tax code that creates jobs here. >> senator, you're not polling particularly well, but you're out there trying to get people to know you a little bit better. in the process, they should probably know where you stand on gay marriage. can you make very clear what your view is on gay marriage? >> i believe that marriage is a union of one man and one woman. you can call something marriage. it isn't. marriage is something that is intrinsic to society. a necessary glue that holds a
5:38 am
family together. we need to day so every child in america you deserve a mother and father and we will have a set of laws that encourage that the case. >> are you against gay marriage? would you reverse some of these processes that have been underway to try to make it easier for people to have civil unions or gay marriage or not as troubles by civil unions as you are by actually gay marriage? >> i'm troubled by everything. marriage cannot be defined differently from one state to another. that is a losing proposition. people, you know, can't be married in one state and then go to another state and state say we demand you recognize our marriage. it will not work over the long run. it has is to be sus sustained one way or another. for the interest of children and interest the society, marriage should be what it is. which is the union of one man and one woman. >> senator, look forward to talking to you again. i would tell you dangerous to go around saying the stimulus didn't create jobs. >> look it up. >> if you originally suspected a
5:39 am
different story. >> look it up. >> i'd be happy to do it and happy to hear fra from you as well. >> their report says the job totals have decreased over time, not increased. >> fewer jobs created than initially thought. not a loss of jobs. very big difference. let's not make a campaign slogan out of something incorrect. >> if you say so. >> you might think me for the guide ns bguidance but it's you campaign. >> rick santorum, thank you. >> let's be clear. that's not right information. >> okay. thank you so much. smart, sexy, sinister, a few words to describe our new guest. katie pilgrim will be fiction to try with her explorer code. it's all next.
